Woman's Day Specials

my 2009 advent calendar in pr
 Woman's Day Magazine contacted me over the summer about contributing my 2009 count down calendar to a special holiday issue. Exciting stuff! They were absolutely wonderful to work with in every way.

I've been scanning the supermarket magazine racks for the last couple of weeks to no avail, but then a huge box arrived on my doorstep last Friday. It contained everything I had sent down to NYC for the photo shoot, including two copies of the freshly printed magazine. Whooot!  It's filled with great ideas for winter crafting, so keep your eyes peeled in the check out line.  There are some other  familiar, crafty bloggers I spied within the pages, and it feels great to be a in such nice company. Most of all, I'm happy to have my advent calendar back in time for this year's count down. I'm planning on making a new design, of course. That's become my tradition, but I figure it will be nice to have one set for each child. So, now you have a head's up good and early this year: start saving your toilet paper rolls again!  If you'd like to make the one right here, follow this link for the instructions.

  1. This is wonderful!

    Funny that they were shipped to NYC. For the Witchcraft book I had to ship homemade snowglobes to NYC too. Guess that's the place for crafts!

  4. Congratulations and what a gorgeous project! My Bug always collects the "skittles" (one of our first projects) from the toilet rolls so I thin we aldready have at least twenty-five ready and waiting.

  22. Hoo boy! I did a double take and a HALF when I spied those tp rolls in the first shot, then had to read on, just to confirm. How flippin' brilliant!

    Now THIS I can do. Hopefully three times, for my three littles.

    You are a genius.
